Caged or Free

Whether we are caged or free

there are boundaries

to be crossed

daily in our lives

 

The free man thinks he is free

but he is not

There are hoops and snares

he has to encounter

daily in his life

 

The free man

obsessed with being free

doesn’t even notice

the impediments along the way

 

The caged man knows he is caged

And longs to be free

How free can one be

when oppression rules your day
